No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
I have read conflicting information on this subject. I am wondering if anyone knows for sure if raw sprouted black beans are toxic?
I've read that, too. But, if you're not 100% raw, you can sprout and cook the black beans and being sprouted is much better for you. You might want to try an experiment that I haven't done yet and that would be to sprout the black beans and then blanch them for 60 seconds in boiling water before using them raw. Just a suggestion. I don't know if that would work or not. Guess we have to do more research.
Hello - thanks for your reply! I actually went ahead and did just what you said - sprouted and blanched and guess what - I got sick! So I have made the decision that beans might be a food item that I can eat cooked or not at all. I definitely won't be eating uncooked black beans again! I have tried chickpeas many times and they are fine, and lentls are wonderful . . . black beans, not so much LOL
This is good information to know. I had not heard this. I have always cooked my black beans. And, sprouted chick peas and lentils...hmmm...not sure why...just has always worked out that way. Thanks for the info.
